With their recent visit to these shores still fresh in the memory, Fidlar announce their return on February following the release of their debut album 'FIDLAR' on 4th February. Tickets for the tour go onsale 9am on Friday 14th December priced from o8 (subject to booking fee) and are available from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
Formed a couple of years back, weened on a diet of house parties, skateboarding and generally enjoying life to the max, LA's FIDLAR have come to the fore with their own take on their influences - surfier, faster, more fuzzed out and more personal than any of them. Live shows have also included tracks by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Warren Zevon and Blink 182 amongst others and does further to enhance their reputation.
The album, recorded and self-produced at the band's home studio with mixing duties handled by Rob Schanapf (Elliot Smith, Beck, Guided By Voices) is fourteen slices of insanely catchy and aptly titled punk rock tunes that look set to become favourites over the coming months.
The band's recent UK shows saw the quartet completely win over a burgeoning fanatical audience and will undoubtedly see similar scenes on their return early in 2013.
'FIDLAR' (WEBB355) is released on 180g vinyl and digitally through Wichita Recordings on 4th February 2013 and followed by the single 'Wait For The Man' on February 10th. The full track listing is:
1. Cheap Beer 8. Wake Bake Skate

4. No Waves 11. LDA
5. Whore 12. Paycheck
